The scientific topics of the project will be focused on the prediction and control of highly detached massively separated flows, with aeroacoustic detection and propagation. A contribution to a better understanding of the underlying physics and the advancement of new numerical methods better suited for these flows is expected as a scientific outcome of the project.
The training of the fellows is focused on acquiring awareness of fluid dynamics methods that contribute to a deeper understanding of environmental fluid mechanics problems in a series of applications of key technological relevance which could be implemented within the airplane design process. It is intended to extend the range of simulation available today, both in physics understanding and in new technologies. Direct impact is expected on methods that are based on the complicated analysis of flow separation (by introducing new techniques that provide insight about the stability of a given design), noise generation (early simulation capabilities based on current technologies in use), novel simulation techniques (that will reduce the design loop cost by reduction of resources needed to perform the same simulation), solution quality increase (by improving the mesh generation quality assessment).
